Starting from the very basics, of course you need to buy your first pickaxe which is Crappy pickaxe you are able to buy it at PIXELMINES. If you can afford anything better then go for it.
So first of all I recommend to don’t buy any keys. If your budget is low you shouldn’t buy any pickaxes or gears as well. Level one mine is for free, clearing it two times gives you more than 100 bronze nuggets. You can combine those to create a bronze key ( level 2 ).
Alright so we got bronze key. Now it’s pretty easy, just keep mining. You need to complete Level one mine 4 times totally to create level 3 key.
In order to upgrade your pickaxe/gears, you have to gather corresponding quantity of ingredients.
Here’s list of all these:
